Firstly I had a dicount token but they refused to accept it and I had to pay full price which is pretty cheap anyway. At the time of my visit there are more staff than customers. The staff watch everything and God help you if you take a photograph of touch anything. Lots of exhibits but most of them meant... More

I visited this museum a few years ago and liked it (particularly the costume display), but sadly there is no longer any reason to visit this museum! None of the displays are labeled. There is a guide page to the side of the room that should have information about the items on display (which are sparse) but all it says... More

Everyone told me to see this museum, and so I did. Fortunately, the entrance fee is quite small, because the museum itself takes maybe a half an hour tops to visit quite thoroughly. There is no english signage whatsoever, and even the Romanian signage is somewhat sparse. There are two floors, but not really a lot to see- mostly pottery,... More

A large collection of artefacts from rural Romania; the peasant title disguises the fact that here are items of beauty, practicality, and a tradition which goes back centuries. The items could be better interpreted for overseas visitors, but it was enjoyable to wander and see material relevant to education, crafts, work and religion. Photography needs a permit

This museum asks the visitor to consider what was good about the past - not simply to look at it. The audio guide asks you to consider the strengths of what was and to ask what might be missing in today's world which is illustrated by the way the exhibitions are arranged. The installation on the communist era is very... More

At this time (June 2016), only a small part of the museum building and its collection and none of the garden is open to the public. Having read the fulsome praise heaped upon this museum, I was very disappointed. My visit was very short because there just wasn't much to see. My advice is to find something else to do... More
